Petion-Ville, Haiti

Here is a picture of the city of Petion-Ville in Haiti.

Petion-Ville, Haiti
The city of Petion Ville is located on the outskirts of the capital city, Port au Prince. The city, founded in 1831, was named after former president Alexandre Petion. Previously a suburban area to the east of Port au Prince, Petion Ville is now the centre of tourism and commerce in the area. Also a residential area especially for the affluent class of the society, it can be regarded as the wealthiest city in Haiti. Many international banks, hotels and embassies are located in Petion Ville. In 2010, an earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale hit the area, disrupting the progress of the city. The city has gradually recovered from the damage caused to the trade, commerce and infrastructure. The social life of Petion Ville is not far behind in any respect. Besides a very active night life in the presence of various bars and casinos, a number of top class restaurants, boutiques and art galleries can be found in here.
